ICR139: Stewart Cowley, Man vs Money
My guest for this episode of Informed Choice Radio is Stewart Cowley.
Stewart has worked in financial markets in New York and London since the 1980s. He has written columns for many of the world’s leading business publications including the Sunday Telegraph and the financial publisher Citywire.
Stewart is a regular guest on BBC’s Newsnight, Radio 4 and Sky News.
In Man vs. Money, Stewart distills the complexities of the economy and provides an essential guide to modern-day money and our relationship with it.
Along the way he explains how the statistics that govern our world are based on guesswork, why stock markets are like a wandering drunken man, what you need to live like a millionaire and why cooking has made man the dominant species on the planet.
Man vs Money shows you how understanding a little more economics can improve your life.
In this episode of Informed Choice Radio, I speak to Stewart about how debt has become a way of life, why Donald Trump and Jeremy Corbyn are in fact joined at the hip, why Mark Carney will never raise interest rates at the Bank of England, how Bitcoin is breaking banking models, and how business, like love, will find a way when it comes to Brexit.
